What you'll do
I propose a relaxed walk through the region popularly known as Little Africa, which is in the seaport area of the City. Relaxed but full of reflections on racism, religious intolerance and about the Carioca culture. A great chat where the exchange of knowledge is always welcome. The walk lasts an average of three hours. During this period we will pass on tourist attractions that include the Historical and Archaeological Circuit of Celebration of the African Heritage, among others. I will present the region of Gamboa, known in the past as Health. I will also present numerous attractions that can be explored by you after the walk or at another opportunity, according to your disposition and enthusiasm. To realize this Experience I count on the help of Gabriela Palma. Gabi is a tourism agency focused on the residents of Rio de Janeiro, she is a tourism guide and teacher. She is passionate about the world of tourism. She is also one of the leaders of the Airbnb Host Community in Rio de Janeiro. When I can't guide you, Gabi will do this.
Luana & Gabi
I'm a tourist guide and historian from UERJ - State University of Rio de Janeiro. Work with historical-cultural tourism with an emphasis on afro-referenced narrative. I have already coordinated two social projects and worked on several projects with young people in a situation of social vulnerability in different communities of the city. I develop this project in Little Africa with the objective of showing the participation of black people in the cultural formation in Rio. I have lived in Rio since I was born and love to walk around the city listening stories and enjoying in sights, tastes and people.
